What would be better:
A- A CHarger with the balancer incorpored and a battery with only low voltage protection
B- A more simple charger and batteries with their own low voltage protection and balancer.

why not 3.75mm, seems like a descent compromise. And I don,t think it is going to impact any external gear added to the camera.

Yes, it won't be very hard to design our own battery pack for the Axiom.
Here i made a Low Voltage protection. It will cut at 6V, (3V per cell) and it can be added to each Sony NP-F in case it's necesary.

We could also build our own NP-F compatible batteries (later) with Panasonic 18650 inside. The electronics seem not too complicated.

Menga added a comment to T736: Battery System.

Sony's NP-F batteries do have their own protection inside the battery. I disassemble one to check. This one in particular has two 18650 from panasonic, and it was built in 1997. This batteries are still being produced 20 years later and used in modern cameras like the FS700. So i think is a good route to build the battery system.
The camera could have a universal power conector to change between different battery plates, so other baterries could be adapted as well. Like RED does with their cameras.
Even an ATX power supply connector could do the job.

@TWiGGZ as you see there is no urgent need for this product but if you are interested feel free to experiment and design some 3d-printable dummys, the only thing which seems clear is that we go for the NP-F battery system. (i am on holiday from now on and will respond later this month)

sebastian added a comment to T736: Battery System.

Keep in mind that lithium-ion cells need electronics around it to manage charging/discharging, etc. and cannot be just inserted like AA Alkaline batteries. Developing our own battery pack has several obstacles and disadvantages, the electronics development itself wouldn't be that big of a deal I guess but just think of the safety regulations and certifications we would have to deal with for no real advantage over existing solutions....

More flexibility is of course always preferred but I had the impression we are building a camera integrated battery mount here. Such solutions to externally attach batteries to rods in several places in the rig and for several battery mount types already exist from several manufacturers no?

Jul 5 2017, 11:10 AM · AXIOM Beta Hardware
christophvarga added a comment to T736: Battery System.

NO! that is a mistake, if you are using rods, than you put them ON the rods behind the camera.. usually..
and if there are no rods it is good to attach it to the body of the camera directly to make one sturdy body.
don't you think so?

Jul 5 2017, 9:19 AM · AXIOM Beta Hardware
christophvarga added a comment to T736: Battery System.

good point.. maybe two (upright) next to each other on the back side ?

My concern for putting the batteries under the camera body are that it might get in the way of attaching rods at the correct distances below the lens center: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/Rods

hi, what about such a hot swap- double battery design which fits under the camera or somewhere on the rig?
for 4A it is also good to have two batteries so that (the cheap ones) don't get hot too much.
